I smoked this one down to a nub. I had it in my humi for several months not really knowing what I had til today. Fired it up, smoked it and found the following: burn problems at first but, it self-corrected; draw was very good; aroma was very pleasing; taste was excellent, like sweet caramel with a bit of spice; lots of good smelling smoke with each puff; white/grey ash, and a long pleasant finish. I only had one and so, I have to get more. It is really a very pleasant smoke and worthwhile.
Unwrapping this cigar, I was impressed by the size of this torpedo and how good it looked. Perfect in every way. The taste was delicious and consistent throughout from start to finish. The draw was perfect. My one complaint is that I found it to burn a bit too hot, even though I smoke my cigars slowly. I can well understand how these cigars are the "house smoke" for the Toranos. A very nice cigar and a great step up from the mild cigar both in flavor and complexity, yet never overwhelming.
